Federal Work Study (FWS) is an opportunity for you to work and earn income for your college education while in school. It is a federally funded program that awards up to $4,000 per academic year (Fall/Spring) based on need as determined by the FAFSA.
The program provides part-time on and off-campus jobs for qualifying undergraduate resident students, and can be requested by graduate and online students. Visit the Human Resources website to view job openings and complete a student employment application. You are eligible to apply for a FWS position if it is offered on your Award Letter. In such cases, you are required to secure employment and a position is not guaranteed.
Federal Work Study cannot be included toward payment of the upcoming semester bill or Financial Check-In since it depends on you securing a position and working the hours during the upcoming semester.
Students with remaining Federal Work Study eligibility for an award year may be able to continue their employment through the summer term and earn their work study funds. Please see your employment supervisor or contact the Human Resources Office for more information
There are several advantages of Federal Work Study for students who want to earn money to help pay for college expenses:
Graduate students and Online students are welcome to request consideration for Federal Work Study funding. You are encouraged to apply for approval by January 15th each year by completing your FAFSA and emailing the Student Financial Servies Office at email@example.com.
